So last time I asked for video card upgrades I ended up getting too cheap and held off for time being. But now with all the new shooters out my 9600xt is just too puny now. However I wanted to know what you guys thought about this upgrade.
Currently I'm running a P4 northwood 2.4c 800bus on a 865g chipset with 1GB ram and the 9600xt.
Right now AGP is the only choice and I don't want to spend the cash on a complete new upgrade so I'm ok with not having the fastest and newest with PCI-e. Anyhow I'm looking into maybe a 6800gt or x800 pro. But was wondering if getting either card would be bottlenecked by the 2.4 p4 and if I should upgrade that to at least a 3.0., or just stick with going with a 6600gt because the performance won't be that much of a bump.
